Archbee is an all-in-one workspace for companies to build upon.
It combines a realtime chat solution with a knowledge management solution.
Basically, it bundles Slack & Notion.
The target are small companies (less than 200 employees) – startups, agencies, software development shops, niche product companies.
Data from customer interviews suggests the types of companies we are targeting are holding off on buying newer & better solutions like Slack+Notion mainly because:
the integration between these tools is often a lesser experience than that a bundled product;
the fear of adding bloat to their internal stack;
cost considerations; paying at least $8/month per user for a couple of these tools does not sit well with a small business owner or decision-maker;
Slack, Notion, Microsoft Teams, Confluence, Slite, Coda.
Why will Archbee be a big player in this space?
already great product;
targetting an underserved market;
technical founder with access to extraordinary technical talent in Bucharest, Romania;
the company will maintain capital efficiency.
SAAS: ColorElephant, Portfoliobox, WickCreative, Amediateka, CGI, eZdia, UNIBIT
On-prem: fairly known bank in Europe (in progress implementation)
Solo founder, Chief Everything Officer, designer, developer - Dragos Bulugean
Looking forward to building a world-class team.
Archbee is a capital-efficient company targetting a huge underserved market with a product that bundles products with proven utility.
In business, there are two ways to make money. You can bundle, or you can unbundle.
